The federal government has proposed legislative changes to prevent and address workplace sexual harassment and violence in federally regulated, parliamentary and government workplaces. But the new system does not set out specific disciplinary measures in cases where such behaviour is determined to have occurred. Bill C-65, introduced today by Minister of Employment, Workplace Development of Labour Patty Hajdu, would amend the Canada Labour Code and the legislation governing parliamentary staffing.
Nathan Cullen does not aim to have his words recorded in the history books—or that’s not what he’s thinking about, anyway, when he rises to speak in the House of Commons. The NDP MP for Skeena-Bulkley Valley in northern B.C. focuses on providing clear explanation over quotable elocution. “I am not speaking to someone who is going to judge any of these thoughts historically,” Cullen says.
One Thursday in October last year, Shannon Stubbs started getting text messages from constituents who worked at Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s case-processing centre in Vegreville, Alta. They’d been informed that the office would be shutting down. The next day, Stubbs rose in the House of Commons to bring attention to the closure.
"He’s telling you that when someone tells you racism is still a problem and that something should be done about it, they are, at best, a dupe and, at worst, part of a Marxist conspiracy to destroy your way of life"
The equivalent of this from a Canadian media éminence grise would be very welcome
"It’s not pleasant to realize that the bygone age you romanticize … was great for you, or people like you, because others were denied a fair shot"
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
